I am not a sophisticated computer user and I have some cognitive problems due to age and illness so please be as simplistic as possible with any response. I was trying out new features and now have the private browsing icon on the bottom bar on my screen. The color purple triggers strong anxiety for me so I just want to get that off my screen. I won't be using private browsing so I want to remove it. I tried to drag it to the recycle bin but couldn't get rid of it that way. Please help me remove that icon from ever being on my screen. Thank you.

Firefox is the browser I use for my AT &T E-mails. I cannot sign in anymore using my password. It says too many attempts have been made to sign in, when it was the first time on that day I am trying to sign-in. I have tried to change my password and it works for a while, and then the same thing happens a few days later. Please help. AT & T tell me that it is the Firefox browser that is doing this. I have tried getting help with AT & T and they can't figure it out.

Hello Mozilla Community,

Mac has keyboard text replacements where a text input entry can automatically output a word or phrase.

i.e. When I type "ty", it will automatically output "thank you".

I am aware of previous queries and solutions in the form of extensions or add-ons. However, this is not reasonable if there are dozens of these text replacements already inputted in to Mac OS.

It is worth noting that this is not an issue in Google Chrome...

Thank you in advance! (tyia) ; )

I am using windows 10 64. Youtube videos don't play on the latest version of firefox, but do with microsoft edge. The spinning loading circle icon appears but video playback just doesn't work on any video at all, not even youtube shorts. This seems to be a problem only with firefox version 106.0.1 and 106.0.2 on my system. I downgraded to firefox version 105.0.3 and had no issue with youtube playback.

I've been trying to search on Bing to get their search points, but they are not registering on Firefox. Other browsers do not seem to have this problem. This is happening very recently. I've started Firefox on safe mode, refreshed it, still not working. I've disabled add-ons as well but nothing. It only refreshes to add something at the end of the URL, not sure if that helps.

Firefox has auto-updated with lastest version and all new menu items and ALL my hundreds of BOOKMARKS have disappeared. Also, a new new product called Firefox Private browsing has been installed without my knowledge.

My bookmarks I use for work and life, and will very hard to re-create.

The browsers I have used before have always stored the bookmarks in a safe place?

I have turned off Auto-update as it obviously doesn't work or has serious bugs.

I keep getting a rectangle popping up asking for my PRIMARY PASSWORD--Mozilla Firefox Please Enter Primary Password Sign In Cancel

I've tried every password I know & none work. So I changed my Firefox password (primary?? I don't know)

The rectangle continues to pop-up. To get rid of it I hit Cancel a couple of times.

I can access my Firefox Account But this rectangle is totally annoying.

What can I do? I need help. HELP!

I was looking at an article on CNN when the fan in my PC started winding up to its top speed. I pulled up the Task Manager and found that 29 instances of Firefox were running simultaneously! Is there a way for us to limit the number of Firefox instances so that it won't completely paralyze my computer? I remember this happening a couple of years ago and I moved to a different browser, but I'd really rather get this under control than switch browsers.
